When decorating your rustic bedroom, there are many options to choose from. Rustic style means creating a comfortable and peaceful space with nods to old-fashioned decor. Rustic bedrooms often take their inspiration from barns and wilderness cabins. With such interesting details as hanging wildlife skulls and faux fur throws, the design harkens back to the past.
Out of every space in a home, your bedroom is without a doubt the most personal. Even though it's an area many of your guests may never actually see, it still deserves a great deal of attention. It's where you recharge, reflect on the day, and even spend time reading a book, so it only makes sense for it to feature the right color palette and furnishings. And let’s not forget that it also has to showcase your design style accurately and complement the overall aesthetic that’s reflected in other areas of your home.
Instead of sticking with plain white walls, considering another neutral that adds a subtle yet bold twist. "Responding to an unusual Y-shaped floor plan required a strategy to pull light from all directions to create a range of shifting light experiences: Moody and subtle to the south; bright and open to the east," explain the designers behind Arent & Pyke. For a moodier bedroom that isn't full-on dark, try a steel blue gray like this one. And then lighten things up with colorful linens and keep things streamlined with bright a white ceiling and modern bedside sconce.

A vintage motel sign gets a new life as a campy headboard in this rustic hotel bedroom by Locati Architects. The burnt orange walls match the sign while enhancing the room's cozy appeal. Another fantastic idea is the wood trim around the windows and walls. Raw wood was installed instead of conventional crown molding. The old books and bear lampshade on the left bring on the kitsch.
However, most parents don't have the funds to lavishly decorate their child's bedroom, nor should you spend your hard-earned cash on furniture, bedding and decor that has inflated mark-ups and little long-lasting value. Truth is, you can create a fabulous room for your teen without going broke in the process - or even without spending much money at all.

We love how this bedroom designed by Regan Baker boasts a bohemian feel despite the statement piece: That large-scale photograph of a traditional yellow bedroom. For a similar look, opt for a high-impact photograph of an interior that both reflects and juxtaposes your own space. And in true bohemian fashion, simply lean it against the wall instead of hanging it.
